Don't listen to the last story

Everything was going fine until the last story when Esther forces the idea of a divorced couple having a second child. The world doesn't need any more children from divorced parents.

Insight into people's minds and relationships

Simply engaging all through the episodes. You can put things in perspective. Esther is very articulative , clear and supportive in her talks. Very engaging. At times seems like eavesdropping into the couple's personal sessions.

Captivating

It has been such a privilege to get to hear these intimate experiences of various people handled with such nuance, compassion and reason. Although I am only 20 and not in any form of a romantic relationship, listening to this has enlightened me more about the intricate nature of human relationships. Thank you Esther and all the people involved.

A forensic investigation of dysfunction

This series is enthralling. The second episode in particular, I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through, it was so intense . It’s like listening to a seasoned interrogator use empathy and guile to unearth a couples deepest secrets and untangle decades of miscommunication in minutes. There’s a new catharsis every five minutes- it’s almost exhausting, how good she is. Everyone should listen. We all have something to learn from this.

got my tearing up as usual

There's something about real unfiltered stories - in particular, one we rarely hear about: the challenges of immigration laws in romantic relationships. kudos
